Professional Dental Cleanings

At Brittney K. Craig, DMD, we believe that a healthy smile is a beautiful smile. Regular professional dental cleanings are an essential part of maintaining not only the aesthetics but also the overall health of your teeth and gums. In this brief guide, we'll explore the importance of professional dental cleanings and what you can expect when you choose us for your dental care.

Why Professional Dental Cleanings Matter: While your daily oral care routine is crucial, it's not always enough to remove all plaque and tartar buildup. Professional dental cleanings are designed to reach areas that are difficult to clean at home, preventing dental issues and ensuring your smile stays radiant.

What to Expect During a Dental Cleaning:

  • Thorough Examination: Our experienced dental hygienists will begin by examining your teeth and gums, looking for any signs of dental problems.

  • Plaque and Tartar Removal: Plaque, a sticky film of bacteria, and hardened tartar are gently removed using specialized tools.

  • Polishing: We'll polish your teeth to remove surface stains and give your smile a sparkling finish.

  • Flossing: Precision flossing ensures that no debris is left between your teeth.

  • (Optional) Fluoride Treatment: A fluoride application helps strengthen your teeth and prevent tooth decay.

  • Personalized Advice: We'll provide you with tailored recommendations for at-home oral care to maintain a healthy smile between visits.

Comfort and Convenience: Our team is dedicated to providing a comfortable and stress-free experience. You can relax in our welcoming environment, knowing you're in capable hands.

Frequency of Dental Cleanings: The American Dental Association recommends regular dental cleanings every six months, but some patients may require more frequent visits based on their specific needs. Our team will work with you to determine the best schedule for your oral health.

Invest in Your Smile: Regular professional dental cleanings are an investment in your oral health. They help prevent dental problems, such as cavities and gum disease, which can lead to more extensive and costly treatments if left untreated.

At Brittney K. Craig, DMD, we're committed to helping you achieve and maintain a healthy, beautiful smile. If you're due for a dental cleaning or have questions about your oral health, please don't hesitate to reach out. We're here to partner with you in your journey toward a healthy smile.
